The win moves CMS to 3-0 on the young season.

Sixth grader Jaxon Pruitt hit a free throw with no time on the clock to tie the game in regulation and force overtime.

The game was tied 14-14 at half after a scoreless second quarter for Coffee County. The Raiders struggled at the stripe, going 5-for-21.

The Raiders did spread around scoring production, getting points from 8 different players – led by 8 from Jett Trussler (all in the second half) and 7 apiece from Jaxon Pruitt and Jacob Mullen.

Both teams will travel to North Franklin Tuesday, Nov. 1 to return to CTC play.
